2005 Honda Crv 230xxx kms

I'm having a problem with the rear inner brake pads wearing out within days. I have had rotors, calipers and pads replaced multiple times. Two different mechanics. The first one has no idea how to fix the problem, so I went to someone else who is a Honda tech. Both mechanics have said everything is moving as it should, everything that needs to be greased is all good. I suspect everything is fine and then whatever the problem is happens and the inner pads are getting stuck, so even when I go in after a few days following the repairs everything looks fine. Then a few days later I will hear the squeal from a worn out pad. The pads on both sides have been wearing out exactly the same, however this latest time it seems like the right side is having issues (based on checking the temp of the rotors on each side). The mechanic is closed today so I do not know if both sides are worn out or not.

When you say both sides wear out in days, how many miles are you driving? ? That is incredible.?



I suggest replacing the rear rubber brake lines. Possibly, they are swelling on the inside, thereby not releasing the calipers.

Do the replacement calipers being fitted include the stationary brackets? These can get rusty under the stainless steel edge guides which could bind the pads. May need to be filed, to assure that the pads are 'falling out loose' when fitted.

About a 40 kms twice a day.
I will get the brake lines checked. I had the brakes inspected today because one wheel was hot last night and I heard the squealing. They said everything looked fine, but it was definitely way hotter than all the other wheels. My main mechanic is closed today due to the long weekend so I will be going in to see him next week. I have called a few mechanics and no one has heard of this problem.
I was reading somewhere that automatic AWD and other traction control things could be causing issues, but I'm not getting any check engine lights.

Bear in mind, when the inside of the rubber swells, they look fine on the outside!

Some Chrysler products would have the rubber lines swell after ~ 5 years!

Good preventative maintenance is to flush brake fluid every 2-3 years. Honda recommends 3 years.
